First of all....an apology to everyone for my rant last night. Temper tends to be extremely short when only on 2 hours of sleep. And rnj made a good point about "laughing behind the scenes". Thanks for that bit of advice.
So, second day into the new year. It's kind of like an adventure, wondering what is coming up in the next 12 months. No, no new years resolutions, never keep them anyway so why bother. I'm hoping for it to be much better than last year. A position opened up at work this past week, 40 hours a week, and I put in for the transfer and got it. So, instead of 30-35 hours, I'll now be working 40 hours a week. Not going into any details in the blog on it because there are some who take too much pleasure in being ugly.
Classes start up next week. And I'm ready for them! My mom still likes to kid around with me about how I should have had this attitude when I was in high school. But ya know, when you're a kid and all, it was more fun to rebel and raise hell than be "good" and go to school. Funny how when you get older that changes. Speaking of which, I realized just how much I've "grown up". This new years, my sister and I spent it with our friend over at her mother's house. She was there with 2 of sons, (third one was at a new years celebration with his girlfriend) and after the greetings and all, she informed me that there would be another guest arriving, ex husband 1 (she was married and divorced twice) and husband 1 is the father of her oldest son. When they married, she was young, 17 yrs old, and needless to say, the marriage didn't last past a year. And I remember thinking back then what a total "ass" the then husband was back then. Well, New Years, he was there, and, it was as if the last 25 years never happened. I mean, we had fun. It was like it was when the two of them were dating, he was being a smart ass, and everyone was laughing....and thinking back..if this had happened 20 years back, I doubt if we all would have been as relaxed and laughing. Same with my youngest sister, the father of her daughter, she hadn't seen him for 16 years, and my niece, his daughter, got his email address from a family friend, and emailed him, and now, a couple of years later, he and my sister are married. Wow....I guess we've all "grown up". Wait till I tell my mom that one.
I look around me, and, I've realized, I've got it good. I've got a job, a home, my pets, (even though they can drive me crazy at times ), my family, my friends, and there is no reason to feel "down". True, not making $500,000 a year (damn! That would be awesome!!! Wouldn't it? ), but, I can pay my bills and other things..so what more could I ask for? Well, there is one thing, but, not going into that here.
So..with all of that said...Here's to 2012 being a better year for all of us!
